    The Sports Ministry in Paris declared that unjabbed elite athletes would not be exempt from needing a vaccination health pass to attend Roland Garros in May and other sporting events in the country. ...
    And he would not be able to play the same card (announcing that he just had covid) anyway. Could be interesting time in his career. or Will he take a jab/fake taking a jab to keep on playing...but then his anti vax followers will be disappointed

Hypotheticals will suffice, given that the Minister need only be satisfied that the person might be a risk to health, safety and good order.

    Such latitude also grants authorities a heavy hand to target future dissent and protest. The Australian government will be able “to justify,” barrister and president of Liberty Victoria Mike Stanton warns, “the suppression of legitimate political expression because others might engage in unrest.”

    With a stunning lack of imagination, the Djokovic precedent promises that the executive will not be accountable for the disorder and disruption arising from deporting individuals who might command a following. Oppression promises to be twinned with unpardonable stupidity.
    The Oz govt had already made such arbitrary decisions years ago. There have been a handful of cases not for sports thread.

    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    This is satire, but I wonder ...
    World number one Novak Djokovic has put the controversies of the Australian Open behind him and is now fully focused on the defence of his French Open title, saying preparations are already under way for him to contract COVID again in the coming months.

    He was up against Aussie hero Kyrgios so....things happen.

    If OUR NICK didn't mention Russia invading Ukraine then he can't complain.

    I thought Medvedev was a smarter player than OUR NICK.

    Ash Barty makes the final, great play in the semi-final.
    Hope to watch her win the final Saturday. A very special player.

    This would not be surprising at all.

    The test finding him positive is awfully convenient and it being faked would not be surprising.

    One question needs to be answered though. When did Novak first inform Tennis Australia that he had "proof" he had had Covid? Surely if the result existed before December 26th-27th then there might be some explanation for what is put forward in the article.
